Eastern Oklahoma VA Health Care System
VAMC to Hold Open House for New Women Veterans Clinic
July 17, 2012
The Ernest Childers VA Outpatient Clinic in Tulsa will hold an Open House on July 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. for Women Veterans and the public to tour a new Women Veterans Clinic, which opened in June. The clinic is located at 9322 E. 41st St.
The Women Veterans Clinic offers primary care needs for eligible Women Veterans including gender specific care by a provider trained and proficient in women's health. The clinic team also consists of a registered nurse, licensed practical nurse and patient services assistant.
In addition to VA’s new Women Veterans Clinic in Tulsa, the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center (JCMVAMC) also has a Women Veterans Clinic at the hospital in Muskogee.
Women Veterans represent the largest growing subpopulation of the U.S. military and are enrolling for VA health care at record levels. During Fiscal Year (FY) 2011, JCMVAMC and its outpatient clinics in Hartshorne, Tulsa and Vinita provided services for 1,770 Women Veterans, almost a 30 percent increase over the last four years when 1,246 Women Veterans were treated.
